Food and Funds Drive
Donations to Mid-South Food Bank are down and the number of families in need is rising. We are seeing fewer donations from the food industry and less money to purchase food. Mississippi has the highest amount of food insecurity in the country. Mid-South Food Bank distributes food to 18 counties in North Mississippi. Help fight hunger by holding a food and funds drive in your community!
Have a food and funds drive at your church, in your neighborhood or at your business. To have a successful drive, click here for a brochure: http://midsouthfoodbank.org/assets/1869/food_drive_brochure_rev_1111.pdf. If you want to receive credit for volunteer hours worked during your drive contact the volunteer coordinator at 901.373.0400 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
